  1. Concerning that interpretation: A look at my profile and the certain ranking of „interests“ mentioned should be clear enuff, I'd say. But: Would you have clicked my posting otherwise? 😉 The only reason for selling was it's inconvenience playing it seated w/o man spreading.
  2. With a little remorse I have to state my Ex-Vector being sold, again, in the UK. Sold it to a member here who handed it on towards the actual buyer/seller with a strict „Last in, 1st out“ policy. Whatever you may think of a philosophy like that, the Vector is a huge, dry log of hog with great sustain and tone; all original asfaik. Seller's ad (I don't know him, no further affiliation) is here: https://www.thefretboard.co.uk/discussion/175146/fs-hamer-vector-1983-flame-tope-beauty-1300#latest And here is a pic of it:
  3. The UFO-Box would go for 8,89 Euros/9,97 USD incl tracking by DHL.
  4. If you like I could buy this 10 CD-Box for you and ship it to the US. https://www.jpc.de/jpcng/poprock/detail/-/art/UFO-Complete-Studio-Albums/hnum/3946654?lang=en It contains those 10 Studio Albums in a paper box: Phenomenon Force It No Heavy Petting Lights Out Obsession No Place To Run The Wild The Willing And The Innocent Mechanix Making Contact Misdemeanor I'm gonna buy one example for myself, so I could add a 2nd easily. PM me!
  5. Hey Travis, it's hard to guess. I would say, the Talladega is NOT chambered below/around the bridge, as the back sounds the same around the middle axis from neck to the strap pin, but sounds different along the (upper )outer edge from upper bout towards the butt. The chambering seems to differ between 3 and 5 cm wide. Tapping the top, you can only hear smaller differences, but it seems to be alike. The guitar weighs in at exactly 3482 g/7,6765 pounds, if that helps.
  6. I could add: The golden mirror knobs make it more of an R0, just because I liked the optics. And pickups are a set of Ian Anderson PAFs, that are absolutely comparable to other makers' PAF-iterations like OX4 or Throbaks. They suit the Tally well.
  7. And my Talladega Pro, #8 56013, bought 9/2014 via ebay from a big Nashville Studio, after the flood (Top seam opened up a few millimeters at the butt) Edit: 2014 was a not too bad a year.
  8. Well, don't wanna stay too far behind: Talladega #7 55231 Living in Germany, bought 11/2014 over here.
  9. CITES is history! „Only“ taxes & fees make US-guitars still quite expensive over here.
  10. Brothers and sisters, a very seldom chance: Let's go watching the Improv! https://reverb.com/item/31356266-hamer-improv-natural?utm_source=braze&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Daily+Feed+Email Never seen a used one before...
  11. A nice Sunburst is advertised on TGP. Not mine, just saying! Price seems ok. https://www.thegearpage.net/board/index.php?threads/1983-hamer-sunburst-1700.2110278/
  12. I could seize the Std. here in Munich, if you like. You just had to send me the money back, later. 😎
  13. ...and once a year there is an inofficial family meeting at the shop. Friends, family, current and ex-Scorpions members fly in from all over to have a concert in that (very) tiny shop. The whole city street is pumped up with those familiar sounds. Strange vibe, there...
